This body of work is an exploration of the terror and beauty of the fantastic reality that is life.

  • The Alice hosts KOAN COMPOSITES: An exhibit by Ari Fish.The line between blame and confession, projection and acceptance, choice and mandate, and life and death feels, at times, palpable. KOAN COMPOSITES is the fourth installment of the SPEAK AND SPELL SERIES of temporary temples by Ari Fish and is an obliterated riddle of the probability of these palpabilities. Fish has orchestrated the fourth installation in the series to allow the congregants of the temporary temple to engage in disengaging. Fish’s work integrates elements of sacred ritual, religious study, multi­sensory saturation and deprivation, and stresses an emphasis on survival and necessity. The Alice has been transformed into an ethereal and challenging experience for the viewer to process the acceptance of death, rebirth, and nothing. All are welcome to come as they are and leave as they will be. Opening reception June 13th.
